Domke: Obama Money Advantage Paying Dividends

This article is more than 11 years old.

Exit polls show that many more voters have been contacted in recent weeks by the Obama campaign than by McCain's. The Obama field organization has huge numbers of volunteers, and they've effectively used digital technology to reach and organize supporters, but money can help immensely. In 2004 the Bush campaign was more effective than Kerry's in Get Out The Vote operations, in their much-praised 72-hour final push. The advantage this time, though, is clearly Obama's.

Todd Domke is a WBUR political analyst and a columnist for the Boston Globe. He’ll be live blogging throughout the evening.
